ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

An offshore wind energy farm may soon be coming to the Jersey shore.

Officials with Orsted, a global leader in offshore wind energy, have submitted a bid to the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities to build their Ocean Wind project 15 miles off the coast of Atlantic City.

The project is in response to the first offshore wind request for proposal under Governor Phil Murphy’s clean energy agenda.

The offshore wind energy farm is expected to provide more than half a million New Jersey homes with clean, reliable and stable-priced power. It is also expected to create up to 1,000 annual construction jobs.
